How I broke my skin addiction to lotion. I started putting soothing body lotions on my legs and arms over 20 years ago, and now realizing that our skin is the largest organ on our body and thereby absorbing every chemical laced in the lotions I was using, including neurotoxins like propylene glycol (antifreeze) and endocrine disrupters like PBA, among so many more dangerous but common chemicals. But my skin was now addicted to lotion and not producing sebum on its own. I tried many lotions which were organic to help sooth my cracked dry itchy skin and suffered for months, tempted to buy the chemical laced brands that provide instant relief, but I did not. Finally, I started using pure aloe with a drop of Citrus Blend essential oil from Young Living. Not only did it immediately sooth my parched, itchy legs and arms, it healed my skin within 3 days of using it. My skin and I are so happy. Lesson learned: Don't ever put anything on your skin that you wouldn't ingest in your mouth. Keep it clean!
